Years ago I found this milk bottle in a junk shop near our house. It's perfect for wildflowers and you can often find in somewhere in my home filled with my daughter's latest garden or forest finds. Here I have a couple of lilies, which were not found, but purchased. They were great fun to paint, especially with the lighting and shadows playing through the glass. I could talk about symbolism or allegory in this painting, but the fact is, flowers are just a pure joy to paint. I get lost in them and sometimes forget to eat when I am working on one of these paintings.
